Abstract:In celebration of 15 years of bilateral cooperation between China and South Africa, an ambassadorial forum was co-hosted by the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO), the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in the Republic of South Africa, and the Africa Institute of South Africa - Human Science Research Council (AISA-HSRC) on 19 September 2013. The objective of the ambassadorial forum was to provide an opportunity for reflections on the past and outlook on the future diplomatic relations between South Africa and China. This book presents the official keynote addresses and the papers that were submitted which evaluate economic and political progress from a national interest perspective. Progress is measured against variables such as trade growth, the role of science and technology, education, mining, people-to-people development, partnerships, and the implementation of state agreements.
